Join us on Saturday, June 18 from 10:00am to 3:00pm for a multicultural festival celebrating the artistic and ethnic diversity of Framingham! “Many Cultures, One Heart” is a public art project designed to highlight the artistic and ethnic diversity of Framingham through a series of heart sculptures painted by local artists and placed around the Cultural District and the City of Framingham. The artists on this project represent the many communities that call Framingham home, and include Black, Indigenous, Asian, Brazilian, Latino, white, multiracial, Jewish, LGBTQ+, and disabled artists from all walks of life, ranging from teens to seniors. All of the new public art statues will be unveiled during the “Many Cultures, One Heart” Festival, giving attendees an opportunity to see each up close and personal!
